Happy Pink Saturday

Here is another member of my doll collection. She is from 1982. Cabbage Patch Kids were very popular back then. I have birth certificates but, I am not sure which one belongs to her.

Notice her rosie pink cheeks. Do you remember where the signiture is?

What was that name?

I was a teen back then. Just a mere 13. I remember recieving a cabbage patch and a boom box. Santa was good to me that year!

Happy Pink Saturday, Lori. And, lots of licks for Miss Elly.

Yes, I do remember Cabbage Patch dolls, but I already had a child by then. My mother had a couple of the dolls, and we didn't remember which certificate went with each one either.

I do love those rosey cheeks. ;-)

What sweet memories of my childhood your Pink Saturday post brings. I just loved those sweet little Cabbage Patch dolls and just seeing this one made me smile and feel just a little bit younger. Take care and have a great weekend.

I was already grown when CPK's came out. I remember friends with children willing to take out a 2nd mortgage to get one for their little girls. She is very sweet.

Happy Pink Saturday!

I remember Cabbage Patch Kids -- my daughter never wanted one so I dont know where the name is. Happy Pink Saturday.

Oh, so cute. I have several Cabbage Patch dolls from the same era. (I graduated HS in 1983 and still got a doll for Christmas every year.) I have also been to the "nursery" in Cleveland, GA, several times to see them being born from the cabbage patch. So cute! And yes, the siggie is on the butt!!

Weren't they signed on their umm cheeks? You must be my daughter's age because I remember going every where trying to find her a cabbage patch doll when she was little.
Have a wonderful pink weekend!

Hello, I was just out blog surfing and ran across yours. Oh yes, I remember the cabbage patch dolls. Our oldest daughter thought she would die if Santa didn't bring her one for Christmas. Ha Ha - But she still has it today and she is grown, married and now her two daughters play with the newer version of the doll. Isn't it amazing how fads repeat themselves.

Love your blog!

I remember Cabbage Patch dolls. My daughter wanted one so bad, and it was almost impossible to get one. Her daddy finally did get one for her. I wonder where it is now.

Oh, I just love the cabbage patch dolls. I have many of them - I have made them clothes over the years, and knitted sweaters for them. Happy Pink Saturday and have a wonderful new week.

Oh, yes, those CPatch kids were a part of our household, too! Each of my kids had one and, as a mom trying to obtain one for them, it was very difficult to come by them when they were "the rage". My kids are 32 and 29 and those dolls are packed away. I recall the name of our son's was Benny Buck and right now I don't remember our daugher's doll's name--but SOMEWHERE are the birth certificates! Thanks for the sweet memories of those fun dolls!
